From White Papers to cutting edge Research to our recommendations on books to make you think, videos to encourage your creativity and blogs to keep you current.

And, we want this to be a two-way street. When you see a great resource that would be a benefit to the DMO collective, shoot it our way and we'll post it up for your peers. 


The Muscle Shoals Sound

509061c72fdde20c42944b4c0eb29442-1Jack Hall departed terra firma this week. And, while you may not know the name, you definitely know the sound.

Widely respected as the father of  "the Muscle Shoals Sound," and having shrugged off racial pressures to produce only white performers, Jack produced everybody, from the Stones to Wilson Pickett and the Osmonds to Otis Redding.

A great story comes from the sensational documentary "Muscle Shoals." Duane Allman got his true start as a session guitarist for Jack...and ended up playing on some of the greatest songs of the era.

As we say farewell to Jack Hall on this Music Friday, we take you to his FAME Studio and a rehearsal session with the Stones that ultimately resulted in "Brown Sugar."

Safe Passage, Jack.
